I'm a mixed race of Chinese and Jamaican, but naturally my hair is quite thick and a bit kinky. As a kid, I tried using relaxers to get my hair more straighter, but that only ended up with my hair falling out. For 4 years I have kept it natural, and for 3 of those years I have kept my hair in braids with extentions. Gradutation is coming up, and I want to get my hair straighted. This time, I want to go to a salon and get it straighted, and go back every 3 months to get root touch ups. I'm wondering, if going every 3 months for a long period of time, damage my hair?

I don't find a problem with it? My hair is really smooth (And not trying to sound stuck up) but it tends to be soft most of the time too and I straighten my hair about once a week or so. Some girls in my class straighten their hair everyday and they have the softest hair. I guess it more depends on weither or not you protect your hair form the heat. Like I use a hair spray before I straighten my hair that stops the heat form burning or damaging my hair.
Personally I would recommend with you to try straightening your hair with protection spray and maybe buy some special shampoo or conditioner for it and give it a shot (on the bottom layer of your hair first and see if anything happens), if there is a bad result then don't continue :)0
